When a regional electric utility needed help administerin programs for people who are having trouble paying their electric bills, the company turned to Catholic Charities.  Since February, we have processed about 1,000 application a month in the Allentown area.  ” I found a job in which I am able to help a large number of people, and compared to my previous jobs, I have never been thanked so much.  People in this area are very grateful for the assistance we are able to provide, especially during these difficult times.”
